December- The coldest month of the year. The season of chills is a challenge for the abandoned cattle. During cold nights we snuggle into our blankets and jackets but abandoned cows on the streets have no option but to suffer through the cold. In such a scenario, imagine the plight of cows on the streets, who often battle with bone-chilling temperature including unexpected winter showers.
The extreme hard work of our team helped us archive the below-mentioned number of treatments done during December.
Here is a summary of our ‘Save Homeless Abandoned Cows in Central Gujarat’ project for Dec’21.
MONTH CASES QTY
Nov'21 Calf with leg injury 4
Calf with Spinal Trauma due to road accidents 5
Cow with Huge Maggot infested wound 1
Cow with Multiple open wounds 1
Cow with Uterine Prolapse 4
Cow with Laceration 1

Roaming on the roads, they often call out for help. Please listen to their pleas and try to provide food and shelter during the winter shower. Call any animal welfare NGO nearest to you in the case of illness or emergency. Your smallest effort can save a life.
We request you to come forward and join your hands. Your kindness is our only strength.
A few days back we received a report about an abandoned dairy cow who had a large cervical prolapse. Cervical prolapses in Indian dairy cattle are extremely common and are often a consequence of poor diet. Cows produce milk for the same reason that humans do - to nourish their babies. However, calves in dairy farms are taken away from their mothers when they are just a few days old. They are fed milk replacers so that their mother’s milk can be sold to us, humans. This is a heartbreaking condition for most dairy cows but that is not it, later in life these poor babies suffer from painful medical conditions such as prolapse and many other problems.
Treating and repairing the prolapsed region is of high priority to prevent inflammation and infection from setting in. Unfortunately, Nandini’s prolapse was already inflamed, as a result, her owner left her on the road with the untreated condition. When we received her she was immediately given antibiotics and other medical assistance to reduce the inflammation. After a few days, the prolapsed mass was pushed back inside. It may sound easy, but the process is extremely difficult and painful for the poor animal. Nandini’s prolapse has not recurred and she is under constant supervision and medication by the team of our vets.
In our society milk is a necessity but producing milk should be done scientifically and in a humane manner. Depriving the babies of their mother’s milk is not the solution. We need more and more kind people who can come forward and spread awareness for the same. Our well-being will never be possible without their betterment.
This is the month of Christmas. A merry time for us but not so merry time for our abandoned cows in Gujarat. Without proper shelter and food these abandoned cows gather on the road asking for a little kindness from us with their innocent eyes. Most of us are so consumed that we overlook their pleas and go on with our lives. But Jivdaya Charitable Trust cannot overlook the pain of these speechless souls. In the month of November, we have treated 10 cows successfully in our shelter.
